It would be a nice profile for a blanket chest top, tool chest, lid, etc. It is in very good condition with some wear to the body. The blade does have some pitting but it should work out with not too much effort, worth it for this unusual plane.

Extra-Steep Quirk Ovolo and Bead.
This is an early British molding plane, possibly dating to the 18th century. I cannot make out a maker's mark at the toe, though it was clearly made by a highly skilled professional planemaker. t has the appearance of a plane from the 1700s, or perhaps the very early 1800s. It's clearly British and has had at least three owners, two of whom were of the surname Hodgins. The plane cuts an elaborate quirk ovolo and bead measuring 1 1/4in wide by 1in deep. The blade is in remarkably good condition considering the age. It is fairly clean with a few minor spots of pitting well away from the bevel. The entire bead is boxed. The quirk boxing has a few cracks but it is straight and stable. It's a graphic early molder which would make a nice addition to a collection or working kit.

The blade is fine. There is a partial collection ID on the bottom of the brass end. I wasn't confident I could remove it while leaving the nice brass patina in place so I decided to leave it alone.

Excellent Varvill Reverse Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was intended for use with sash windows but has a number of other uses as an edge treatment for furniture or case work. The plane cuts a 11/16in "Lamb's Tongue" profile as stamped on the heel. Varvill used the belt and suspenders method of marking their planes- if you couldn't tell the profile name by looking at the heel of the plane, they also stamped the name for you. This is an odd size, but a very shapely profile, ideal for a shelf or table edge. As with all Varvill planes, this one is very well made. It has a cabinet pitch blade in excellent condition with no pitting at all. The bevel is in great shape and is reasonably sharp. The mouth is very tight. The body has the expected marks from light and careful use. It's a scarce profile and and should be an outstanding worker.

Excellent Triple-Boxed Quirk ogee and Bead Molding Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark I can see, but it is very well made, likely American. The profile has three boxes strips- the quirk and both sides of the bead. It's a striking profile 3/4in wide by 3/8in deep. The blade has some discoloration but no pitting. The mouth is super tight. The body has no damage and barely a ding. The corners are sharp and crisp. The only flaw is a tiny chip out of the very rear of the boxed quirk. It should be an outstanding worker.

Unusual Handled Standing Fillister by Kellogg, Amherst MA.
Kellogg made some unusual planes- this is a good example. It's a standing fillister- it's only job is to cut 1/2in wide rabbets. I don't recall ever seeing a handled version of this rare profile. The blade is straight across, not skewed. The mouth is ultra-tight. The horn on the tote is perfect, finely carved and very thin. The blade does have some light pitting. The body is crisp and clean. It's a nice example to add to your collection or to use to cut 1/2in rabbets.

Near Mint Stanley 78 made for Wards.
This Stanley 78 was made for Montgomery-Ward. It is in near mint with all original finish, all parts, and a perfect, unused blade. I took the blade out of the plane and a bit of the original finish came off the bed and stuck to the blade- I suspect the blade was never removed from the plane since leaving the factory until just now. It's a top quality user plane ideal for cutting rabbets with and across the grain. You won't find one in better condition.

Interesting European PAtent Wooden Smooth Plane.
This horned smooth plane has two patent number stamped on the toe- an Austrian patent 42079 and Hungarian patent 48559, both of which cover the domed profile of the heel of the plane. This domed profile makes the plane more comfortable to use and prevents splitting when struck to release the blade. The blade is an interested John Weiss & Son 23mm (just under 2in) double iron. The iron has a built-in adjusting mechanisim to allow the iron to be set/retracted by turning a screw. The plane's sole has been reinforced with a rosewood block in front of the mouth.
